    Anyone else feel a tingle when Brad acknowledges that some of the rumors floating around are true?

    I have a feeling, if we knew what he knows, we wouldn't bat an eye over this temporary bear market either!

    Well considering most rumors are huge news whether SWIFT partnership Temanos?.... All the Bearableguy123 or Riddle... IMF... 

    I can't think of a simple low key rumor so If any one of the big ones is true which appears to be with that comment, I think we have a bright future ahead if even just one is fact.

    These sanctions only matter to the US and the USD. The EU, China and Russia prefer trading with Iran and honouring the denuclearisation deal. The US seems to be the only nation that is going back on its word and kicking the hornet's nest. This is great news as its further speeding the death of SWIFT and the USD as a base currency.

    US sanctions matter to the EU. The whole point of higher level sanctions is to both punish the sanctioned and anyone helping the sanctioned. 

    Euro businesses risk losing licenses and ability to operate in the US and that also includes fines and seizure of assets. 

    The US has nothing to lose "kicking the hornets nest" because we don't have any trade deals with Iran except for some aircraft maintenance parts. We don't have any true real dependence on Iranian energy to keep the lights on and risk massive public turmoil. Europe did this to themselves and should be more energy independent to avoid all this Iranian Russian egg shell crap. 

  3. XRP corridors don't matter to swift or us sanctions. 

    What's controlled and throttled is the on off ramps of legacy financial institutions. Iran can move XRP all day long but they still need normal everyday banking accounts to spend their money in the real world. 

    As soon as Iranian money enters a fiat rail it's exposed to attack and seizure. That's the whole point of Ripples regulation push is that nothing changes with KYC and AML. 

    XRP is like the internet.... You can still have internet but restricted access once you leave your local network. Much like how China and Russia exclude American sites but still have internet. 

  4. It doesn't move enough in 4 seconds for it to be an issue. 

    In the real world of large corporate payments it's in the contract which party covers the exchange loses. Or a third party market maker covers the loss. 

    Again 4 seconds isn't enough time to make a massive difference unless you're moving trillions of dollars. 

    Lastly price is tied to volume and value of the network. 

  5. There's presently several banks Ripple is close to that are working with blockchain to improve trade finance for global supply chains as well as CGI in the article below. 

    So no officially, but all the parties are working together and most have strong ripple links. Up to you to figure out how strong you think the probability is that ripple and eventually XRP will be involved. Perfect use case for XRP combined with Codius in my opinion. 



  6. In a perfect scenario probably but there's still issues if youre not in the most liquid of markets. XRP makes everything quicker from domestic to international. 

    Think of it like MPG on a new car. In the old days a manufacturer would put only the best number achieved by doing anything to hyper mile a car, completely out of the normal day to day reality. 

    Ripple does the same thing with its TPS number and has yet to prove outside of a test environment how high the TPS can go on ledger. 

    In the end ripples goal is nostro/vostro removal and somethings gotta take the place of that fiat. SWIFT already at least publicly said they aren't doing a digital asset.

    Yup, the last like was a bit out of line but someone asked and someone responded. One think we need to be aware is there might be cultural differences and not just assume as sometimes things come across differently or gets lost in translation. 

    I see age difference more. Young people in general just don't have the manners they use to and twitter/internet anonymity compounds the issue. 

    Instant gratification and answers instead of just letting people do work and get things done. Lack of respect for the efforts and time of others I guess.

    And what will you do then?

    Keep holding because the upside potential is still high for another year or two unless a black swan comes. 

    It's not unreasonable to seek some way to monitor progress from an actual 1st hand source collectively over time. 

    My options outside of watching the ledger volume (which is manipulated - JPY) and the XRP reports are ignore everything for years and potentially miss a critical flag or series of flags  :or: Keep listening to so called experts best guesses and interpretations of every tweet or interview.

    Only an idiot or a pure gambler would invest money and not try to follow the development of that investment with reasonable evaluating along the way. Go blow 5k in slots or a table bet if you don't want to have any hope of mitigating potential loses.

    I have this conversation I want to post just to annoy the holy **** out of the uptight. But I don't know if I can do it and protect my source so I'll just say :tease:instead.
    This is going to be epic. Sorry, but it is.

    Can you post it with full black out of identity revealing information? There's got to be someway to summarize what's said and not reveal identity. 

  10. I don't care about it moving price. I just want to know that their sales are increasing as a gauge of increasing interest from people other than us that have no influence on future adoption and volume. 

    Sales are supposed to be the best yet. If the sales are less than in the past or still around the same we can assume that XRP hasn't gained much ground attracting adoption with institutional products or services.
